STRUCTURE: Dr Giles Maskell director of cancer services at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust has been elected president of the Royal College of Radiologists.

He said: “It is a great honour to be elected and my aim is to ensure patients receive the best care clinical radiology and clinical oncology can offer. I look forward to serving the College and representing the Fellows and members over the next three years.”

Dr Maskell will take over from the current President, Dr Jane Barrett, at the College’s Annual General Meeting which will be held in September.
The trust’s medical director, Dr Paul Upton said: “This is great for Dr Maskell and for RCHT and is the first time I can remember there being a president of a Royal College from Cornwall.

“It gives the opportunity for Dr Maskell to influence policy decisions centrally and learn about developing issues that will be relevant for Cornwall.”
